I am constantly referring people on the Wilton.com forum to videos on your site. (The ones referred most often are "Cake Construction" and "How to cover a cake with fondant using The Mat". ) New bakers have SO many questions and your videos hit the cake nail right on the head!
I began cake decorating at the age of 56 with the first of the Wilton classes at my local Michaels store. Like many others, it has turned into a passion. I have spent hundreds of hours online learning and videos like those from Sweetwise, Inc. are a blessing.
(p.s. I bought The Mat, but haven't used it yet--I'm looking forward to my next fondant cake!)
Grex Airbrush Genesis XG and Air Compressor A1810 buy it as a set and save 61.89$
The Genesis.XG is designed to be the workhorse of airbrushes; ideal for all applications. The large reservoir is easy to clean, holds more paint for longer spraying sessions and useful for mixing custom colors. From fine lines to broad strokes, the XG is an all-around kind of brush.
The Grex AC1810 is a stylish, feature-rich portable airbrush compressor ideal for the artist on the go. It’s lightweight and compact size is perfect for easy transportation and quick airbrush system setup, but it’s piston style air compression gives it the performance expected from the demanding professional.
If you use one special dust all the time (like super pearl), you will love this pump brush. It makes dusting cakes and decorations so easy and will literally pay for itself over time because you'll use far less dust as this brush prevents waste. In addition, you'll get a much more even (not so splotchy) look to the cake.
